Racism in the United States

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Racism in the United States traces negative attitudes and views on ethnicity and race.[1]

A number of Americans said in 2019 Donald Trump, then-President, had made racial relationships worse.[1]

African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, Latinos and Native Americans in the United States have said that they are victims of racism and racial profiling while in college, at work or on streets.[2]

In 2020 and 2021, protests erupted across the United States. Puerto Rican, Central Americans and Mexicans went across the border, including unaccompanied children and minors. African American and Asian Americans were attacked.[3]

As of July 2016, Caucasian Americans are the largest number of people. Hispanics and Latino are the largest minority population. Many African Americans live either in the Southern United States, the Midwestern United States or Western United States.
